I'm a professional broadcaster with Live365. My primary stations play Christmas music year round. My web site is http://www.christmasmusic247.com My revenue for 2006 was around $1,200. My royalty under the old system was $2,000, which was manageable. Under the new system, I will owe around $11,000 (from Jan 1, 2006 through March 11, 2007). So for now, my stations are only available to Live365 VIP members (around $4/month). On May 1st, the SaveNetRadio coalition spent the day walking to meetings with many members of congress trying to drum up support for HR 2060. I walked around with two other broadcasters, plus sat in on one meeting with the founders of LoudCity. It was a long day, but it seems that most offices agree that losing Internet radio would be a Bad Thing. So, please go to SaveNetRadio.org and call your Representative's office and ask them to co-sponsor HR 2060. The deadline for 2006 royalty payments has been moved back to July 15, 2007, so we have a little breathing room, but a lot has to happen to get this bill passed. A senate bill needs to be introduced and passed, then President Bush has to sign the bill. But the first step is to get HR 2060 moving. Please call now!

Which is it: Friday the 21st, or Thursday the 20th? :) Mike

You might explore the split command from an OS X or Linux prompt. That would split your huge file into manageable chunks. You'd probably need to copy and paste a handful of header commands into the top of each output file so that the new SQL database will know where to store the data.
